In Spring 2005, Joe & Dawn attended a 2-day CAMELIDynamics Basics Clinic with Marty McGee Bennett at A Paca Fun Farm in Mt. Airy, MD. Three llamas from Little Creek Meadows volunteered to attend the clinic also: 'Miss Alissa', 'Roscoe' & 'Llaney'. Here are some photos of Marty working with some of our animals. On the left, Marty has haltered 'Miss Alissa' and is leading her through the labyrinth using start & stop signals. On the right, Marty has 'Roscoe' in a catch pen with other llamas to be haltered - the catch rope has just been placed around his neck.
Now that Joe & Dawn have been instructed to use the CAMELIDynamics handling techniques, life at LCM is forever altered for the better - much, much better. We are hooked on the philosophies of the CAMELIDynamics approach to llama and alpaca handling. All of the herd management tasks are now virtually stress-free for everyone, especially the llamas and alpacas.
As part of our commitment to CAMELIDynamics, every new owner of a Little Creek Meadows llama or alpaca will be provided with Marty's book, The Camelid Companion, along with a Zephyr halter, a catch rope, a Tteam wand and a personal lesson from Dawn & Joe in the basic handling techniques.
To further develop her skill set, Dawn also attended a 4-day Advanced Clinic with Marty at her ranch in Bend, Oregon in August. Already, the results have been phenomenal! Dawn is showing off her certificate of achievement with Marty below..
